Amore Pacific: You can find the line at Sephora and Neiman Marcus. They also have a spa and store in NYC. Amore Pacific contains traditional Asian ingredients like green tea, bamboo, and Korean red ginseng, but this brand is all about high tech and modern. The packaging is sleek and aside from the ingredient list on the back, they aren’t loud about their Asian heritage. The line has a huge range of products, from lip balm to peeling serum, to $400 face cream.
The Contour Lift Extreme Eye Creme is a standout. I was at a fancy cosmetics shop in Aspen recently and the salesgirl insisted I try it. “We use it on all our photo shoots. It immediately makes crow’s feet fade and will get rid of your dark circles,” she told me. I was so freaked out that she noticed my dark circles that I didn’t think to ask who they were doing photo shoots with. But I tried it right then and there. Instant tightening and lightening. Miraculous.
